(KABUL, Afghanistan) — Two NATO service members were fatally gunned down in southern Afghanistan Monday by a man wearing an Afghan army uniform, according to local officials.
The attack took place at a base in Lashkar Gah in Helmand Province, a spokesman for the provincial governor said. The gunman, who opened fire at the entrance of the base, was also killed.
The identities of the two fallen soldiers have not been confirmed, but initial reports say they were British.
